|Bio and Links|
Find-a-Grave rocks! |
Let me know if you need a transfer if you can add more bio info. Hope everyone gets out there and photographs some stones - that is the main reason this site exists. Thanks.
I welcome edits even if its just a GPS, plot number, marker transcription or middle name etc. I like complete memorials.
Found this inscribed on a stone in Warwick, Ma.:
"Low in the ground my bed is made,
here in the dark alone I'm laid.
Depart my friends and let me rest,
I'm weary of this wilderness."
Found this on a find-a-grave profile:
Old Bones' profile poem"
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.
NOTE: A couple personal policies I follow:
1) I do not link to "burial location unknown" relatives. You're supposed to know where they are buried - that is the whole point of this website.
2) I do not list cause of death unless it is some tragic accident. Would you want to be remembered forever for dying from diabetes/alcohol abuse/suicide etc.? I find it a bit tacky - but to each their own.
3) I started emailing Find-a-Grave to remove memorials with burial locations unknown when I find out where that individual is buried. This way I get credit for the work and don't have to wait for the unknown location to be fixed etc. Everyone please please please stop making these useless memorials.

|Michelle||RE: You have the info correct|
HA--no controversy until I made one last evening. ;-) This just reminds us we have to go over our data thoroughly and not totally rely on others. :-) If you have any light to shed on the relationship between these men, it would be MUCH appreciated! OR if there are others that seem to be related to him in this graveyard. His son is buried in Highland. Thanks!

Hi, I just commented on: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=35822351
Turns out, the info you have on the page IS correct. It's the people responding/commenting and putting virtual flowers on the grave that are mistaking his identity. Your page and grave photo is correct. Thanks for creating this page!

Thanks for the heads-up on this one. I checked with the cemetery office and added a note to the Rural entry. Regards,

|afbowes||RE: Lydia Seaver Bancroft|
I love rambling! It helps me figure things out! I did see the 2 records for marriage and assumed the July 9 record was the intention and the July 16 was the actual marriage, but it does say intention too.
Something I find really odd is that Moses Bancroft married in 1838 but his 1850 census record, after they moved to NY, has several children (at least 3 if not four) that were born well before 1838. So wow, if he was having children with someone else, no wonder things didn't work out with Lydia! I'm going to poke about a little more to see who the mother stated is for the children...
A bit of a mystery!

|Maureen McCarty||Gale and Reed gravestones|
Hello! I plan to visit Warwick sometime soon, and would love to see the gravestones of my ancestors, Daniel and Sarah Gale, and Jerusha Reed. There are probably plenty of other gravestones, some brothers and sisters, etc., to discover as well. I'm wondering if there is a map of the graveyard in Warwick, to help me find my way? Thanks for any help you can give!
|Ed Poulin||Old Burial Ground|
Finally! I was able to link up all of Paul Tremblay's memorials with their parents/wives' memorials. Many years in the making. I tried a test case many months ago and forgot about it but I went through my list again and saw that it had worked so I did all of the other edits a few weeks ago (that's why I had a bunch for you).
I hope all is well with you.

Cemetery records show them as being buried in Evergreen cemetery, Section 23 Lot 118 A

Thanks, I tried it a few times and it didn't seem to work. Guess I just didn't give it enough time. Can you share the cemetery website please? I have other old photos I would like to get right.
